Judges 13:3,4 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:
Today we read about the wife of Manoah, a woman with no child who received a message that she would bare a child. However, for this to become possible, she was to abstain from wine and other strong drink.
Therefore, even though there was a plan sent straight God regarding the life of her son, her involvement was required. So here lies a secret: nothing happens in the realm of man or is manifested in the physical without the cooperation or involvement of man. This involvement might not always be a conscious participation, even our ignorance can account for this participation.
‘I don’t know’ is thus not an overruling of existing laws. Just because you do not know about the law of gravity does not suggest that you will stay suspended when you jump off a height. The laws and principles, whether physical or spiritual, are in effect even in our ignorance. With knowledge, our conscious and intentional participation is still required.
Beloved, regardless of the perfect plans God has for us, our response to them play a crucial role in their manifestation. Without our active involvement therefore, those plans may never be manifested, so my dear, get involved
